Expert Group on Plot Structures

Kim The Structure of the Plot

We divided the book into three parts: Part 1: Chapter 1-4

       Kim becomes the Chela of the lama

Part 2: Chapter 5-10

       Kim goes to school

Part 3: Chapter 11-15

       Everything comes together

There are two main strands of the plot. On the one hand the lama's search for the river and on the other hand the Great Game.

Is there a spiritual and a materialistic plot?

Is the quest of the Red Bull the trigger for his other quests?

The quest of the Red Bull can be seen as a trigger for his further quests. If the Red Bull was Kim’s only quest the book would have had only five chapters. At the end of chapter five he finds the Red Bull and follows the Great Game. Also he joined the lama on his Spiritual Journey maybe for his own proposes but this is not explicitly said.
